10-02-1977 Portland, Oregon

This show features the "revivals" of Casey Jones and Diamond Dupree Blues in the first set...All the songs in the first set are well done...

The second set is outstanding, the key is the fluid transitions, whether it be the scarlet jam into the fire or the incredible truckin> otherone> wharf rat sequence

Garcia's solo in BEW is *perfectly* crafted.

Anyone who likes '77 (and who doesn't?) owes it to themselves to hear this show. It's my top pick of the year for sure.

This one is an old favorite; in fact I've got it as a personal top three for '77. On top of the "Casey" and "DuPree's" breakouts, you have "The Wheel", "Truckin'" and "Let It Grow", each of which was played 12 or fewer times (out of 60 plus shows) in 1977, meaning this show boasts one of the more unusual set lists in an era where the rotation was substantially smaller than it later became. Combine that with the usual smack-it-over-the-fence execution common to most '77 outings, and you have a refreshing show that definately holds up well to repeated listening.

There is nothing under-rated about this show. Top 5 for 1977, which is hard to achieve because there are so many great shows in 1977. Especially April and May.

This show is KILLER.

make sure you check this interview:


http://www.archive.org/details/jgb1977-10-02interview



i dont remember where i got my copy. not sure if it is from this source. but it is about 35 minutes of Jerry talking to some REED college kids in a very backstage, casual setting -- doing lines.... it is just a wee bit retarded and i can't say i like the college kids, or hearing them do lines -- it's kind of icky ... and while they get more animated, they of course don;t start saying anything MORE interesting -- they just say more of it.....

JUST LIKE WHEN YOU'RE ON COKE! of course jerry, as always too cool for school -- is far more appealing than the BRATS feeding their idol drugs!.... and so, at the end, jerry is restringing his guitar, explainging to some ditz the process of restringing, "uhhhh, so why you doin' that man....?" eventually he heads off to start the show.... and what do you know?

he walks out on stage and opens the set with an ALL TIME CASY JONES -- i guess jerry liked those little brats -- but were they cool enough to know how cool garcia was being? -- i mean, how is that for a story -- "yeah, we got jerry high and then he opened the show with casey jones...."

i believe, here is the show:

great Casey - is it possible that's a little Duprees I hear between the 3 + 5 minute marks?
